Sandra Bullock's LA home 'broken into' while she was inside
Police have arrested Joshua Corbett, 39, on suspicion of residential burglary
Sandra Bullock’s Los Angeles home was targeted by an alleged burglar while she was at the property over the weekend – but the Oscar-winning actress was unharmed.
Police said they arrested a man at the scene, following the event on Sunday.
LA police spokeswoman Nuria Vanegas said officers responded to the call of a prowler at about 6.30am and arrested 39-year-old Joshua Corbett on suspicion of residential burglary.
She added that she did not know whether Mr Corbett had actually broken into the house or stolen anything.
Ms Bullock’s publicist Cheryl Maisel confirmed the intrusion to People magazine.
“An intruder was arrested on [her] property this morning,” she said
“She is unharmed and is fine.”
It wasn’t clear if Mr Corbett had hired an attorney. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Ms Bullock has obtained an emergency protective order, according to TMZ.
The 49-year-old actress is best known for her roles in Speed, Gravity, and The Blind Side, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress.
The incident comes just a week after pop-singer Miley Cyrus’ home was robbed for the second time in seven months.
A man and a woman entered the Los Angeles property while no one was in, stealing a Maserati Quattroporte car and an unspecified amount of jewellery.
In November 2013, her jewellery and a Chanel handbag were taken from the same San Fernando Valley house.
